WAUKESHA, Wis.-- A Wisconsin man burst through his neighbor's door armed with a sword to save what he thought was a rape victim -- and found a man watching porn.
Would-be savior James Van Iveren now faces charges of criminal trespass to a dwelling, criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct -- all while armed with a dangerous weapon, The Waukesha (Wis.) Freeman reported Tuesday.
The neighbor told police last week Van Iveren kicked in his door and used a sword to back him into a closet, all the while demanding, "Where is she?"
The alleged victim said what his neighbor heard was the soundtrack to a pornographic movie he was enjoying in the privacy of his apartment.
When Van Iveren failed to find any women stashed in the flat, he said the incident was "a mistake" and went home, the newspaper said.
The sword-wielding Samaritan was released on signature bond and ordered back in court March 9.
